A talented kickboxer from Great Yarmouth Charter Academy is celebrating a knockout round of championship successes.

Year 8 pupil Keira Sayer recently added three gold medals from the World Kickboxing and Karate Union (WKU) British championships to her growing trophy collection.

The medals join her impressive haul of national and international titles, including three world titles, in disciplines including boxing, Thai kickboxing, and K1 kickboxing.

Keira took up kickboxing at the age of five and has competed across the world, fitting five training sessions a week around her studies.

She said: “I enjoy the training and making friends at the gym.

“I’ve also made friends all over the England where I’ve travelled to compete, and I’ve loved seeing other countries when I’ve been to competitions abroad.”
